Frank Fuchs - A Designer who loves to code

Portfolio

I'm currently free for hire.

I show you a small collection of old projects of mine, so you can see if I'll fit into your needs.

Web

Designing and developing websites is my main task. Knowing my clients workflow and their clients user expectations is crucial and the driving force behind most design decisions.

The following five sites are examples of different use cases. Swipe through them and visit the corresponding websites.

  • forstmaschinenzentrum.de

    Commerce

    FMZ is one of Europe's biggest dealers for used forestry machines. I designed their logo, created their whole design language and developed their first website back in 2009. Since then, there have been some refinements, but the main look stood stable for years until 2021 the website got a major relaunch.

  • dryconcept.de

    Business

    Dryconcept is the classical mid sized company. In 2020 I redesigned their logo and gave them a general look. The website is simple and static for speed reasons. Just the jobs section is CMS driven, so that it can be managed by the client.

  • bembers.de

    Entertainment

    Bembers is a well known comedian. Having his own background in graphic design, he is responsible for the graphical concept.
    The site is CMS powered as the dates, the blog and the shop articles have to be managed by the client.
    My nine years old work is still live, but the new one is right around the corner.

  • helfersphysio.de

    Healthcare

    A studio for physical therapy, Helfers new look was a Wiedemann & kreative Köpfe project. I just did the usability consulting and the web development.
    The result is a clean, easy to use website.

  • arche-de-noe.de

    Lifestyle

    Selling all proberty, buying a yacht and living on the sea. A dream of many. Thomas Ziegler did so and tries to let everybody take part. Mainly on Youtube, but also on other networks.
    The site was first planned as a simple link tree to all of his social network pages. But soon he decided to blog on his own site and also the Youtube vlog is nicely integrated and so gives the possibility to comment on his adventures, without being logged in into Youtube.

Software

Developing native Apps is less restricted than developing for the web, on the one hand, but on the other it is much more demanding, because the possibilities are endless and it is only a good experience for the users if you fit into their eco system and fulfil their expectations.

In the last years I focused on the Mac eco system.

Would I not develop Software myself, I would probably think an app has a far longer life span than a website. But without time and money for continuous development, a software dies pretty fast. And while there are several sites from me still out there after 10 or more years, my only software still alive is Stadium Brain. And alive it is, running the scoreboards of many world known soccer clubs, all across Europe.

Branding

I'm not a graphic designer in the narrow sense of that jobs description. But I'm really good in making complex things far more simple. As this is an absolut essential skill in logo design (at least in my opinion), I've created a few over the years.
Some of them I show you here. Touch to see them in their full color.
